Galaxy S9 Active Release Date

Hi, was wondering if anyone had any updates on when the Samsung Galaxy S9 Active is finally going to be released. We had updates on it 2 months ago and that was about it. They've been talking about it and possible releases as far back as March I think. I'm hoping they release it this month sometime. If anyone has any news, even rumor updates on it, please let me know, thanks!

Take a look at the CAT-S61, Sonim XP8, or the Ulefone T3. They are more rugged than an Active.


@ActiveSamsung

 

CAT s61 is not even close to the s8 active in specs.  Come on a phone for 900 bucks with a SD630 in it the s8 active has a 835.  It also wont get all the bells and whistles with att since it cant use enhanced LTE features the T3 and is not a rugged phone according to their website.

 

The Sonim XP8 is sold by ATT but software support is lagging.

As of right now it's vaporware.   There is no FCC filing for the device.  The s9amsung is selling bad and the s8 active sold bad so they may just go with what they have.  I check the FCC site every other day to see if it comes for cert.   The new Galaxy watch has.

I asked this question on an online chat with a samsung representative. He said there is not a release date, but they are in fact working on the s9 active. I was worried at first myself. In my opinion they may be waiting to release it because the sales are so bad right now. I wonder if they are hoping that avid active users give up and get the regular s9 because people don't think the active is coming out. Then when it does come out, Samsung might think people will get the active and ditch the regular s9,,,, therefore selling two phones to the same customer...

If you believe what a online chat rep says your a fool...  Front line staff have no idea what is coming down the pipe till they make a release announcement like with the note 9..  You could ask about the new gear watch and see what they say but call it a gear 4...

I did not take it as a factual statement, but rather providing an experience I had based on the question. Take it for what it's worth and use your own common sense, but again that does not change the fact that the exchange occurred and is relevant to the question. Have a good one! As a side note, I would discourage against juvenile name calling here. It appears a bit childish and is in no way productive 🙂

Read what I posted...  I said your a fool if you believe it which it looks like you don't from what you posted....  I didn't call you a fool unless you actually believe the statement.

I just want to know one way or another, yes or no? Is the s9 ACTIVE being released this year or not? There has been absolutely nothing about it either way. If they are going to end a line of phones that has been released the last 4 years you would think they would announce it one way or another?

as of right now who knows..  They dont release plans for phones ahead of time..  I can tell you the only new ATT phone to pass the fcc since 7/18 is the Samsung A6 that went thru on the 1st of this month.

It is definitely odd there is no leaks yet, with the dismal S9 sales maybe they held off release? It would be a shame if so - it's a high end phone with a big battery. We'll see if anything pops up next Thursday on the 9th.
